    Do we have a Shen club yet? A search said no. If not, I'm founding one now.

    Mods, I wasn't sure where clubs go, so please move this thread accordingly.

    But, here we go! Second post will be a list of members/numbers, as is the norm. and here's some pictures of my baby:





    Sorry for the obnoxious dampits, i got her a few months ago when I didn't know as much as I do now. haha.

    NOTE: All members must post pictures if they want a number. =]

    But anyways, I digress. THE SHEN OWNER'S CLUB IS OPEN FOR BUSINESS! :hyper:

    Oh yeah, just a 4 string. I had this bass in 2006, long before they started making 5ers if I am not mistaken.

  14. Just Picked up an SB80 from the student string shop in Fairport N.Y. last semester.

    So far so good--> possibly looking at a SB150 in the future

    SB200. Love it.


  17. Yes it is! I don't have much experience with Pickups for Upright, however I have no complaints with this one.

    I wish I could join. I rented a SB 150 for three months and just loved it. Can't swing two basses right now, but if/when that happens, I would buy a Shen.

    For now, I'll just have to be satisfied to look over the fence at the cool kids...:bag: :)

    Really? After all that careful shopping and your "Hungarian experience"?
  20. Count me in! I have a 7/8 Willow Flatback. It's an older one from about 2002. I will post some better pics soon.
